Author Interview – Stephanie Erickson

Do you intend to make writing a career? Yes!

Have you developed a specific writing style? I think my style is always evolving and heavily influenced by whatever I’m reading at the time.

Have you ever had writer’s block? If so, what do you do about it? I tend to get writer’s block when I have a lot going on in my life, and I can’t focus.  When that happens, I read for inspiration.

Who designed the cover? I did, but I’m a graphic designer by day.

Who is your publisher? I self published The Blackout on Amazon, and am hoping to get it on Nook soon!

What was the hardest part about writing this book? Sticking with it!  I got the idea for my next book when I was half way through this one, and I really wanted to put it down and start writing the new book.  But, my husband helped me stay focused!

How do you promote this book? Social media is my friend!  I spend a lot of time on Facebook and Twitter pounding the pavement with the book.  I also have a blog, and have just recently done guest blogs for other authors to drive interest.

Will you write others in this same genre? I haven’t decided.  I write whatever my muse tells me to!

How much of the book is realistic? That depends on how you look at it.  A catastrophic solar flare could happen according to some scientists.  There’s a lot of speculation about how devastating it would be.  However, if the worst case scenario played out, some of the circumstances in the book could happen.
